Marcel Lévesque, a quick-witted car salesman nearing retirement, lives to sell. He has been salesman of the month for the last sixteen years at the dealership where he has spent his career, in a declining industrial town in Lac Saint-Jean, where it's cold enough to scare away the tourists and buying a car sometimes seems completely absurd. There's just one thing on his mind: getting his beloved Detroit rides off the lot. Marcel Lévesque is a salesman from a bygone era, a man who learned his trade by telling tales - "fibs dressed up with flowers" - and making his customers happy. But a tragedy will change everything for this peddler of dreams.Written by
A movie about a small town in a rigorous weather : sensitive and beautiful
Sébastien Pilote is a very promising and talented filmmaker : the way he painted this region (North Canada) with such a sensitivity is very moving. The photography is so good that we can feel the snow and this very particular light of winter. Gilbert Sicotte plays an excellent role in the character of a car dealer who has dedicated his life to something he's not really aware of (to globalization ? to the consumer world ?), and Pilote is very subtle about that, as there is no judgment in his movie.
Definitely a filmmaker to follow, I'd love to see this movie again - but for that it need a distributor in France ! And then I'd love to see his next movie as well.
